The United States continues its Kickoff series against the second top players this season against England at the historic Wembley Stadium, where USMNT head coach Dave Sarachan had to say yesterday at a press conference .
These teams have only played 10 times, and England has risen over 70% of the time. Three Lion has a 7-2-1 record against Yanks. This is the first time the teams have met this memorable 2010 World Cup match.
Steven Gerrard painted in four minutes, and it seemed that England was cruising past the United States. Tim Howard took his place on the field and put the ball in on it. Howard finished six saves in the first World Cup. England was a better team and should have won, but Robert Green's nonsense gave the United States back to it. The match ended all squares 1-1.
The biggest news today is Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie all together on the field. This is the first time the trio plays with the parent level. These three young players are advertised as the main players in their generation.
The only possible thing that could overshadow the trio would be Wayne Rooney's return and 33-year-old gets the last English invitation. Rooney is played in his last international game and he has an old number 10 jersey and captain on the English side.
This should be good compatibility and one that the United States can struggle with. England is likely to win, but Yanks have shown this year that they are not pushes and give Three Lions everything they have.
